    One of the guns above is illegal. A or B?

    Is this "reasonable gun control".

    The party that thinks producing a valid ID to vote is "chilling" or intimidating to voters seems to have no trouble making gun owners into accidental felons!

    Take the poll for your amusement, not that answers here have any statistical validity :)

    The illegal gun no longer exists, being "un-manufactured" shortly after the photo was taken.

    Here is an image shack link.

    When I click on it, it says invalid attachment specified.

    Is it just my computer, or are other people having this problem?

    The answer's probably choice 4 anyway, but I won't vote until I see it.

    Site seems broken.

    I see the image with this link and the original that I've replaced with this one.

    http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=86217&stc=1&d=1223756736

    When I tried to upload it a third time I get "Attachment in Progress" The fact that I could upload it a second time meant something went wrong with the first upload, but for some reason I could see the image. Since I can't upload it again it now at least thinks it has it.

    It's still not working. Maybe post a thread in technical, or describe the guns to us.

    You might want to submit this to the technical support forum, an issue of such magnitude might not wait until a mod sees it in this thread.

    Probably what is the most illegal is inserting the magazine from B into the rifle in A - but I wouldn't know anything about that ...

    So which one is the 'legal' one btw? I am guessing its the bottom one because it has a 'stock' flash-hider, but I don't know anything, lol.

    I guess the bottom one's illegal, because the bayonet is an extra imported part?

    My guess is, the top one's illegal. The magazine is a non-US one, and so the gun breaks the domestic part count law, the name/number of which I can't actually remember?

    I voted once and wasn't sure if it worked. I think both option 2 and option 4 are true.
    Unless one of them is full auto (and I suspect they are both the same gun) they SHOULD both be legal. Gang members are going to get these regardless of the law. I suspect that the one on bottom with the pistol grip is illegal, though. (And BTW, you shouldn't be building things like that. You could get arrested, unless you change a certain number of parts to those manufactured in the U.S.)


    And P.S.: what's that machine gun there? The trigger appears to have an odd tilt, it's very interesting.

    I can't distinguish from the photos that either of them are illegal. You can't tell if certain parts are or aren't imported, or whether the bottom one is select fire.
